Thank you everyone for the amazing comments on my work and the corset. I have never done anything like it before and I was super proud of it! I gave it to the performer who I made it for last night and her reaction was better than anything I could have asked for Cheesy (it was squealing joy, running around back and forth with it held above her head hahaha) I can't wait for the show, I hope the artist of the original work will like it even half as much Smiley

Holy cow SmashU. I feel so little around your work.  Shocked
*blush* Wow! Thank you? I feel like that when I look through everyone else's amazing work as well!

TheSapphireMoon: The TM patches are beautiful!

sheepBlue: The elephant is hilarious! I love the tuxedo jacket (especially because it is gold). And your embroidery continues to amaze and delight!

MissingWillow and hddgm: Your altered tins are so delicate and beautiful!

suereal: The crafting belt is hilarious! You did such a great job I LOVE IT!

ChrisSews: The needle book is lovely! I love how orderly and labelled everything is, it's totally inspiring. And a zipper! Great job:)

I finished a bunch of swap stuff but can't post until it's received. But.. Last night was the Simpson's burlesque show put on by my friends at the theatre I work with sometimes and I was determined to make something to wear to it. And I had even put it on my list here so clearly it HAD to be done  Grin I was initially thinking something with donuts but decided to use things from my stash! And I came up with a Duff beer dress! Ironically one of the performers also decided to do Duffman so it was perfect!

Dress made from scratch, white was a jersey panel I sewed on top and the logo I made with Butcher's paper Smiley

Ack...I haven't been keeping up to date on this thread....so much good stuff.

Altered tins are awesome.
The craft champion belt is fabulous.  Cheesy
ChrisSews, I LOVE LOVE the machine needle book. Fabulous idea and so well executed.
Smashu, you look fantabulous as Duff beer. I agree that I am in awe of your crafty skills.

LOVE the "You are my happy" hoop, the TM patches, the needle book, the Duff Man costumes, and the birds hoop!  So much inspiration here!!

I made my little dude Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc., the current movie on instant replay all day long.  This one actually was on my list!

38.   New Robot plush for DJ (or whatever he wants)

Only now he's asking for Sulley, too....

And, I made these for a St. Patty's Day party we went to yesterday.  They are cake pops, but without the "pop" component.  I guess that makes them cake truffles?  I used the cake pop recipe, but just didn't put them on sticks.  I've attempted cake pops twice previously, with zero success when it came to melting the chocolate.  This time I watched several YouTube videos and bought a real chuck of chocolate and phew! it worked!  There are a few fork marks on them from dipping in the chocolate (the "artistic" photo is really just to hide them from view!), but I'm just glad that they came out this time!  They were a hit at the party!

Stitching, cooking, tins, corset, stuffies, very important crafters, socks, stitching, quilts... AMAZING ALL OF IT.
You guys are absolutely incredible.  I don't check in for a day or two and I am pages behind and left stunned at the creativity and talent that hangs out here. 

A humble completion and a dilemma ...

  A pink purse/ mini messenger bag.  Made of two thrifted fabrics.  The pink feels sort of like silk but I'm not convinced. 

The lining is more vintage fabric I've used before.  Probably 50's curtain fabric. 

Now the dilemma.  I'm making a quilt for a swap.  The only thing I know about my partner is her favorite colors.  The theme is New Beginnings.  I put together a stacked coins that I can quilt and bind and call it done. 

But something in my original plan keeps coming back to bug me...

So, do I play it safe, not knowing age, or style or anything, or do I add turn it around and add the tree?  I really need your opinions as I have to get this done in the next couple days.  Thank you so much!

I love the tree. I think it adds a lot of character to the quilt.


Would love to do personal swaps - collection items for my Duck's Unlimited women's raffle

Definitely add the tree.

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

I'd add the tree.  The added detail that takes the quilt from nice to WOW and really adds interest.
